It is named after Bilal ibn Rabah (May Allah be Please with him). One of the most distinguished and admired figures in Islam. He was a black slave in the city of Mecca when the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) began to call people to Islam. He was one of the earliest followers of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). He rose to a position of prominence in Islam and was the first human being to be given the great honor of making the call for prayer (Azan) in Islam. Since that first call, the melodious call to prayer has been sounded in every mosque around the globe five times a day (see video below for the call for prayer at Masjid Bilal by Sh. Saleh).
